Zenit St Petersburg coach Dick Advocaat wants nothing more than a date with his former club Rangers in the UEFA Cup final in Manchester next month.

While Walter Smith´s side held Fiorentina 0-0 in the first leg of their semi-final at Ibrox on Thursday night, the Russian club earned a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, leaving open the possibility of a clash between Advocaat´s past and current clubs at Eastlands on May 14.

Dutchman Advocaat, who was boss at Ibrox from 1998 to 2001, is relishing the prospect of a meeting with Rangers and a reunion with his former chairman Sir David Murray. "It would be great for us to face Rangers in Manchester and it would be great to see my good friend David again," he told PA Sport.
